Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs is the top earner on the list.

According to the magazine, Combs earned $130 million from June 1, 2016, to June 1, 2017 through his “Bad Boy Family” Reunion Tour, a stake in Ciroc vodka and the $70 million sale of one-third of his Sean John clothing line.

On number two spot is Beyoncé, with $105million in earnings.

‘I’ve never met anyone that works harder than me in my industry,’ Beyoncé had told the magazine in 1999. She is currently on break from touring as she gets ready to have twins.

Harry Potter author, J.K. Rowling brought in $95 million, while rapper Drake and Portuguese soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo round out the top five.

Last year’s top earner, Taylor Swift, dropped to No. 49. The singer brought in $44million, down from $170million – but she hasn’t put out an album or toured since 2015.

All 100 celebrities on the list made a combined $5.15billion, but that doesn’t account for the fees they pay agents, managers or lawyers.
